An adjustable bed base is a good thing to have if you spend time in bed reading, watching TV, or working/playing on a lap top.
For sleeping, it has little to no therapeutic value.
Sleeping flat, which maintains the natural alignment of the spine, is what best relieves back pain.
What’s more, an adjustable bed will cause whatever mattress you chose to go with it to wear quickly. When the head is raised, your body weight shifts from being evenly distributed to a central point just under your butt.
It’s at this point in the mattress that will wear more quickly than it normally would.
You have to understand what you’re up against when shopping at most of today’s mattress stores, which is a sea of mattresses upholstered with memory foam.
Salespeople are poorly trained when it comes to knowing their products.
They are no longer made to understand the components of their mattresses or how they work.
They are, now, no better equipped to advise anyone as to what they need than the man in the moon.
Today’s mattress sales training is focused on how to maximize the dollars of the sale, and how to close the sale.
The mattress industry, on a whole, has gone bad.
Millions of dollars are spent to advertise poor quality products, which you pay dearly for to cover the expense of that advertising.
I wish you luck with all of this.
Keeping your mattress clean and dry will increase its longevity.
